A Renaissance jewel set on the River Cher, Chenonceaux appears as if from a fairy tale. It is a superb example of 16th century French architecture with a history as a “chateau aux dames,” or ladies chateau, due to its ownership by a royal mistress and two queens. The ghosts of courtly intrigue, rivalry and magnificence fill every gallery and garden of this legendary place.
